Husband of rape campaigner Jill Saward pays tribute ahead of her funeral

The husband and twin sister of rape campaigner Jill Saward spoke of her "loving" nature in the run-up to her funeral.

Gavin Drake described his wife as "caring" and "beautiful", while sister Sue Lancaster spoke of the impossibility of filling the shoes of a "unique person".

Ms Saward died from a stroke last week, nine days before her 52nd birthday.

She devoted much of her life to campaigning for sexual assault victims' rights following her rape in the notorious Ealing vicarage attack of 1986.

Her funeral took place at Lichfield Cathedral on Tuesday.
